Karim Huu Do Dives Into Skin-crawling Horror The Shoes' 'Submarine'

Karim Huu Do creates a haunting yet beautiful film for The Shoes 'Submarine' in his otherworldy, atmospheric style. The skin-crawling music video, exclusively at Dazed.com, follows a tortured relationship, through featureless partygoers, over swirling dark water, through the windows of cold modern house. 

According to Dazed, director Karim Huu Do likens the track to taking drugs. “The slow tempo, the nonchalance in the surreal lyrics, everything in this song made me think about how you experience a drug," he explained. "I explored the physical and mental state you go through when you’re taking a substance. More precisely, how the dopamine is released into your brain, and how drugs interfere with it. All together, it makes the story you see in this film; a couple that feel like a drug. While one is losing control of his mind, the other is losing control of her body.”
